If by Guru we mean a particular human being, there is no such person at Fireflies. Yet, the ashram has a symbolic reference, which is the Earth. This reference is all the more significant given the enormity of the ecological crisis facing humankind. The Earth is seen as sacred energy, part of the larger cosmos, from which all life has emerged. At Fireflies we believe that by experiencing Earth Spirituality, we can each discover the inner voice within ourselves.

Siddhartha, the founder of the ashram, is a writer and an activist.
